About

I will be on the 2020/21 Job Market.

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the department of Economics and the Centre for the Study of African Economies at the University of Oxford. My research is in development economics, with a regional focus on Sub-Saharan Africa, and primarily utilises large-scale field-experiments. My job market paper uses an RCT to examine the impact of disbursing microfinance loans via mobile money on the growth of female-owned micro-enterprises. I also have studies looking at the impact of role models on secondary school students’ educational attainment, cash transfers on women’s empowerment and a village-based poverty alleviation programme on household welfare.
